Grounds Day 11th May was a great success!  The pond is well underway and the ‘wild’ area was cleared to allow access and to enable a wider range of plants to grow.  Two nests were discovered-one had chicks and the other eggs, so we are looking forward to plenty of tweets soon!

Y5 work with RSPB.  Folowing the successful coppicing and clearing in Eggerslack Woods, the Y5 pupils will be learning more about the High Brown Fritillary Butterfly and other endangered species when visitors from the RSPB come to school after half term.  The children also have the chance to visit Leighton Moss to see their projects and lend a hand if they can.  They will travel sustainably by using the train and walking to the Moss.

The willow is in the green and looks fantastic now the children have helped to re-weave it and improve the overall shape.

Grange School has entered Cumbria in Bloom.  Last year we were in the developing category -we aim to move up this year.  The children have been growing their own plants from seed, hoping that the slugs will leave them alone this year.
